With or Without lines? by MySweetQueen-Dolls With or Without lines? by MySweetQueen-Dolls

If you like Monster High Dolls come join :icondamonsterhighdolls:

I started painting those white lines on the monster high's lips to make them look more realistic and light, but lately I've read comments saying they look dry that way. The first comments like that were really rude so I didn't pay much attention to them because they seems to be just haters, but then people kept saying the same with good manners and I started worrying about it, because those were real and respectul critiques, so I did this.
I want to make the lips looks sexy and juicy, so I don't like the idea of them looking dry >< should I go back to my previous technique, without those lines? I tried to make them thinner, but it's so damn hard in such little dolls. Don't be afraid of give me your opinion as long as you are respecful with my work, remember critiques doesn't mean free insulting :)
help me to improve!

The lines look great from a distance, though the lines are too jarring up close. The second looks great up close, but lack the complexity of the first. Maybe you could use smaller lines? Or maybe less contrasting colors?

The lines look OK, but make them less prominent. Smaller, thinner maybe. Lighter, I suppose.

i agree, if the lines are added do all of the above. lines can make or break the 'realism'

I understand where you are coming from :) I think the idea you have is a good one, but if you want to do the lines to look more realistic, you should use smaller lines. They do happen to look dry when they have lines like that. Maybe if you want to continue using the lines without them looking dry, you could use thinner lines? maybe get a smaller tool to paint them on? :/ If not, I think your orignal design on the right looks nicer :)

Maybe, if you want to keep doing lines on them, paint them in a color that matches the lip color.

I prefer the left, but is there some way you can blend it better? The white lines contrast so strongly with the orange-y lips. You could make the white lines a little thinner or add some different shades of orange and pink so it blends better? Sorry, I'm not really sure how the medium works on dolls.. I just started browsing your work and I have to say I love it <3

perhaps a mixture of both?? uvu
something closer to the original lip colour, maybe
i don't know very much seeing as i don't ever put much detail into the lips i draw/paint/whatever

I think maybe using a bit of both? Like using some of the verticle lines and and the horizontal?
